I have been on the hunt for some cute, summery espadrilles for several weeks. I have found tons of really cute shoes that I would love to own. . . here comes my problem. . . they all have 4 inch heels or higher. I am already a tall woman, 5'9". Not like freakishly tall, but definitely above average. If I wear shoes that have 4 inch heels or taller that makes me 6'1" or taller. That takes me from above average, right to Amazon Woman height.
But back to the shoes. What happened to 2 1/2 inch heels being the norm? Even shoes that aren't espadrilles have huge platforms in them.
How do you even walk in shoes like these? I have tried on shoes like these in the store, and they always make me laugh. I tried them on next to my mom who is 5'6", and the top of her head came to my shoulder. I don't mind, that if in heels, I am a little taller than my husband. But towering over him and everyone else in the room is a little embarrassing.
I know they do still make some espadrilles and heels in lower heights. I do own a few pairs. But lately I feel like the lower (normal) heels are in more matronly styles, or look old lady to me. All of the really fun, sexy heels seem to only come in the 4 inch heels and higher. And why wear heels, if not to feel a little sexy?
I will continue my search for perfect pair. Hope you have enjoyed the view.
